Executed in 1924, Venus is part of a series of watercolors that Oscar Bluemner produced following his move to Elizabeth, New Jersey. In his description of works on paper from this series, which he called “paintings,” Bluemner stated: “While of America I have seen many men’s towns, and know their minds’—to use Homer’s words—I do not mean to state the physical aspects of what I see or as I see it…Art is a matter of emotion. Has the painter ‘something’ to say? Is it Painting?’” (as quoted in Paintings of Mr. Oscar Bluemner, New York, 1924, n.p.).
